    Quoted from Mojosan:

    State has laws against that. We can cut the lock, open the door, and look inside. But we cant step foot inside or touch anything.
    And any money the auction brings in over the amount of back rent owed goes to the tenant anyway...

    Hold up... So I get to profit directly from my scam? WTF why haven't people done this yet? I should rent a unit and load it up and just wait for the check to come in.

    Appraised at $3,000 but asking $2,200 for a quick sale.

    Must be the same appraiser that the Pawn Stars use.

    #6259 37 days ago

    I sent him a message the day it came up with the Pinside screenshot and let em know their appraiser was full of it - no response.

    Honestly, that's probably not a bad deal on a Wild Card if it's in really good shape. It's a killer game, one of the very last Williams EMs, and they made less than a thousand of them.

    #6261 36 days ago
    Quoted from statictrance:

    I sent him a message the day it came up with the Pinside screenshot and let em know their appraiser was full of it - no response.

    In the article it says "the person who has serviced this machine for years" has appraised it. If I needed to charge $150 or so a year to service a Hollywood Heat, I certainly wouldn't tell them it was only worth 750...

    #6262 36 days ago

    Given the information gathered in the listing and assuming it's 100% accurate - we can determine this person isn't exactly a major pin enthusiast or very knowledgeable about the hobby. Based on that - there's no way this machine in a home use only environment was getting enough use to require major yearly maintenance... Certainly not a full multiple hour teardown requiring a $150 charge.

    Maybe it's easy for me to say since my repair business is a side venture that I genuinely enjoy doing, but being willfully dishonest with your customers to pocket a whopping $150 is a shitty way to do business. I'd rather give them the honest information, work with them to do more infrequent maintenance based on their actual needs, and build my business on positive word of mouth.

    I run mine the same way. But... there are a few others in the PGH who will tell you whatever you need to hear for them to make a buck.

    So how much for the triple strike? Since your a newbie and don’t want to identify where your from.

    Wasn't my ad. Just surprised how long Craigslist left it up. I'm not at that point of passive aggressiveness with Craigslist posters. Assume it went with this ad.

    Nice playing Williams Triple Strike pinball machine. Everything works. New rubber, new ball, new flipper bushings, new flipper EOS switches. Backglass has some minor flaking but presentable and has been sealed to prevent future loss of paint. 2 pricing tiers on this one. If you want to know what the minimum I will take is...that amount is ***$540***. If you would rather send several messages back and forth "negotiating" my asking price is $750 and you can talk me down to ***$540***. In garage for quick and easy loading. Feel free to text me anytime day or night.

    #6268 31 days ago

    This is a FACEBOOK laugh... A KING ROCK in Troy MI for $2800
    And it looks like it is missing the flipper rubbers

    There was a time that sign came on top of many Stern pins when new. Some folded down, some didn't.

    Here’s one that just sold on eBay today. $860
    It is dumbfounding.

    I can only assume a newbie was duped 8nto thinking it was a real commercial full size pinball.

    Estate sales guys pad the price so they can pad their commission! And when it doesn’t sell they pay the owner pennies on the dollar and take it back to their shop and put it on craigslist again!

    Wow. I think I would rather pay 65k for a twilight zone before I spend 16k on f-14

    #6285 21 days ago

    I gave him benefit of the doubt and asked if his price was a typo (maybe a zero too many).

    I actually did . I showed him the archive first and he was like "well, looks like it is not available, and really rare".
    When I showed him this add....no reaction came back....lol

    #6290 21 days ago

    It’s definitely still available.

    I was there last Sunday on 50% off day, so it was only $1500.00....

    I offered them half of that, but "$1500.00 is the lowest we can go". Some of the family members were there (parent passed away) so if it didnt sell, one of the kids was taking it. I'm guessing one of the kids got it.

    Even at 750 I think it's over priced.

    That BSD in Troy has been for sale for a looonnnnnggggg time. All the pinheads I talk to around here joke about it. For somebody moving, he does not seem in too big of a hurry to sell.
